I had some great help with getting everything set up and I find the email automation system quite easy to use and understand, which is great as it has gotten me to do a lot more with automation. I have the email lists integrated onto my website optin forms and it's quite simple to see who takes action on the emails that are sent in the automation sequence.
I love that I can segment my clients into different groups to email them directly from Keap, and also do the same with prospective clients and past clients. Having everything in one place makes my life so much easier and streamlined and has encouraged me to do even more than I was before in regards to client communication.
I had some issues at first with the Keap phone number, but they did get it fixed, although it took quite a while. The one thing that I am missing right now with them is recurring invoicing because I would have to be the one to enter the client's credit card information in order to do that here, so I am still using another product for that.

I've used Infusionsoft twice to accomplish marketing automation that Hubspot didn't handle well.
Infusionsoft is a great tool for small businesses that need to kick it up a notch with their marketing automation. It offers an easy to use visual workflow builder and although the learning curve is a bit steep, once users get the principles, the customization is a great trade off.
Infusionsoft does have its quirks and the learning curve can be steep for those who are not technical or logical. Recommend working with a partner to get past this challenge.
Thank you so much for the high marks. So glad to hear the power of the product is beneficial to you and your business!

Did not buy because it was too hard to load our on going data
Great software and user interface. This was the #2 choice for us
Poor integrations, could not load the data on an ongoing basis as we wanted to.

InfusionSoft was great at first and exciting to learn the platform and start building campaigns. The campaign builder is by far the best part as it is very easy to understand and super easy to visualize your campaign the way it maps out. The elements, processes, communications, etc. are all on a grid map with arrows connecting and directing contacts where to go based on criteria, tags, and triggers you define and set. Once your developers connect everything you need, it is fun to create campaigns.
Two problems: the CRM is subpar and some integration connections are not ideal. In terms of CRM, there are a lot of preloaded fields as you could expect. The problem is that if there are fields you do not need or use for your business, you're stuck looking at them no matter what. You can create and add up to 100 new custom fields and define the type of field they are, but you cannot remove or even hide existing fields or tabs. Also, we used ScheduleOnce to connect to schedule leads who interacted with our site by filling out a form. Sometimes ScheduleOnce would update their system and cause problems with InfusionSoft and vice versa. Support from IS was quick to address and fix this when it was on their end though.

I love this product, it is the best when you get advanced marketing experience and a big mail list, you can really do magic with it with the advanced action based segmentation
I loved the tags and advanced segmentation I can do with my marketing funnel. I can tag users based on their actions. This is beyond amazing
It takes some time to learn how to do it and sometimes the integrations are a bit quirky with certain platforms e.g. wordpress

Pricing starts at $79 for 500 contacts and unlimited emails.

Depending on the type of business, lead scoring can be an incredibly important feature for entrepreneurs and sales teams. Infusionsoft’s lead scoring and distribution tools make it possible for businesses to identify “hot” leads and improve overall productivity through visual lead scoring.
Click on a contact’s profile and check out the number of flames showing under the Recent Activity section. The more flames that show up, the “hotter” the lead is. This type of lead scoring is easy to understand, and it ensures that leads are always assigned to the appropriate salespeople on your team.
Infusionsoft’s contact management system lets users see client contact information, marketing and sales histories, order and account balances, lead sources, lead scores, tasks and appointment histories, and website activity histories.
Click on the contact management tab, and select a name from the contact management system. On one screen, that person’s general information and an account summary appears, showing how much money that person has paid to the company. It is also possible to add tags, which are searchable notes that businesses can use for list segmentation.
The Infusionsoft CRM can be used to automate certain contact management tasks, ensuring client relationships are continuously nurtured. This can be done by setting up appointments, tasks and “follow-ups” within the CRM. Users can add active notes on prospects and clients, and have the ability to view and share interaction history with colleagues.
E-commerce tools allow Infusionsoft customers to create professional-looking online storefronts for their businesses. Included in these storefronts are digital shopping carts, which enable businesses to process transactions through their websites.
